We are heading to Koko's 39 week appointment in a few and will update here. Also we started Twitter and its to the left on here and at this site www.twitter.com/toddandkoko so you can follow what we are up to. I feel like MC Hammer on Hammertime on A&E, it's out new favorite show since Jon and Kate turned out to be dirtbags that were capitalizing on their children.

I will do my best to update it when Koko is in labor without getting in trouble :)

It's been a while since we posted anything, but here is the latest. We went to get another 4D ultrasound in Yokohama and this time it looks like it could be a boy!! The technician couldn't really tell but after the appointment was over Koko saw her in the restroom and she said 65% chance it's a boy. Hopefully if we get any gifts they are a neutral color, since we've never had 100% confirmation on the gender of our little bundle of joy that will be here in less than 2 months.

We still have a gift registry on http://www.amazon.com/. Search "wende" in the baby registry area. We have a lot of stuff already but constantly finding stuff that we need from the inventories in different books.

If you look closely you can see her pretty little face and long fingers, mostly you see her legs and arms. After 30 weeks it's difficult to get a good view of the baby's face in 4D but you can kinda see it. She's very active and playing with her cord in the videos, as the ultrasound technician said, "it the only toy she has right now".

On another note, we drove to Sasebo to see Koko's parents (1234km away) for Golden Week and my 33rd birthday. I was a longggg drive but something to do.

This is the Miyajima Shrine we went to on the way back.

It's a girl

This post is just to see if we can input our own videos. This is a video of the 22 week 4D ultrasound recorded from the DVD they gave us played on my TV and then recorded with my camcorder. This is just a test so if it works I will try to place a longer one here or at least the parts where you can really see her. So now it's a confirmed girl!! We are so happy.
